Week 3 Assignment-You are the head of a department at a local school




Week 3 Assignment

You are the head of a department at a local school. You notice that there is a high percentage of students who are failing the initial course. You realize that you need to change the textbook, assessments, and classroom participation requirements to address the high percentage of failing students. You anticipate that you will receive some “push-back” from both faculty and students. The faculty will push back because the changes will require additional work to design new lesson plans. Students will push back because the proposed changes will require additional work on their part as well as purchasing a new textbook. For this assignment, you will first determine your own leadership style, then determine the best ways to communicate the needed changes to the faculty.
